If that hash rate is real expect the PS5 to be sold out forever :messenger_tears_of_joy:

(no worries, that screenshot is definitely fake)

So its safe to assume these will never be widely availible now? I get the feeling ps4 is gonna be around, and possibly sonys primary platform for a long time

I would think that if any of them are going to be hacked first it would be a windows based XSX.

Why did anyone take it seriously?

Thats RTX3080 levels, not even the 6800XT can do that.

Wow, does that mean prices on Ebay will jump from 1.000 bucks to 2.000 or more soon? Jesus Christ...

If they could get mining to run on the consoles it would still be worth it, there's enough bandwidth there for 60ish mh/s. Very unlikely to happen though.
